difficult child was tested (once again) by an independent contractural child psychologist at his school on Friday. They wanted their own diagnosis instead of all the others we've gotten over the last few years. Okay. Guess what? He diagnosis'd him with a serious emotional disorder. We don't have the written report yet, but husband and I met with him and got his opinions. He said, "depressed, no self-esteem, pessimist, negative and definitely ADHD". He said this will open up many more doors for assistance than with the original diagnosis of ADHD/ODD. Are any of your children carrying around this diagnosis? I'm so confused. What other types of assistance are there? I feel very validated....just wanna say, "I told you so, I told you so..." I know one of the the things the doctor is going to recommend is Social Development Classes that he'll have to be bussed to. I'm sure the school is upset they opened up a can of worms, but I'm grateful (I think) for yet another professional's set of eyes and ears. Insight, anyone?
